The system of surveillance started after the First World War and during the time of cold war the extremities of surveillance surfaced. RCMP started to surveil many political leaders, university students and faculty members. The RCMP started recruiting student informers in order to extract information on any act unusual in nature carried out by “disruptive or revolutionary” groups and people involved in “counterculture” for example hippies(Griffiths, 2016). RCMP began scrutinizing people based on there sexual, economic and political orientations.A wide range of illegal activities and illusionary measures were used by the RCMP in the name of surveillance. This included use of electronic surveillance, illegal opening of the mail and the fact that RCMP was maintaining file on more than 8000000 individual Canadians. (Griffiths, 2016)During the 1950’s, the RCMP started a secret operation by the name PROFUNC which was specially designed to make a list of people who can possible be a threat to the democratic ways of the country and have communist line of thoughts. Extensive surveillance, interrogation and hardships faced by the gay and lesbian community during those times is inevitable. Canadian government used the notion of “nation security” towards on its own citizens (Griffiths, 2016). The RCMP used various forms of surveillance- fruit machine test, the bathhouse raids etc to name some.Following will be the guidelines if I’m a part of the commission assigned the task of laying out the guidelines for the police related to surveillance-Surveillance should be tailored in order to maintain the privacy of the person under surveillance.A prior notification to the public should be provided informing them about the surveillance that will be conducted.Safety and Security of the information gained through surveillance should be assured; this information can be in any form e.g. video, audio, paper, oral etc. If the chances of a situation that might pose a threat to the safety of the public is determined, mitigating actions to abort the risk should be prepared and imposed.An individual have the right to access their personal information.
